ANU sets up Cyber Institute

By

The Australian National University (ANU) is setting up the country's first interdisciplinary Cyber Institute.

The ANU Cyber Institute will tap expertise from various disciplines to conduct cyber security and innovation research.

It will be jointly managed by the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science and the ANU National Security College.

"ANU is perfectly placed to bring together the required expertise across a range of areas to deal with the increasingly complex issues in the cyber domain," said ANU vice-chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt.

"This institute will present new opportunities for research, innovation and education."

Dean of CECS Professor Elanor Huntington said "The Cyber Institute represents the convergence of interdisciplinary expertise to resolve highly complex societal issues.

"The institute has in its DNA a deep appreciation of the technical and social expertise needed to tackle cyber security, resilience, risk and strategy."

Head of the NSC Professor Rory Medcalf said the establishment of the ANU Cyber Institute built on the Australian Government's 2016 Cyber Security Strategy and its newly-released International Cyber Engagement Strategy.

"Cyber now touches everything from your own financial and medical data all the way through to our critical national infrastructure," he said.

"This initiative by Australia's national university is about protecting the nation, its infrastructure, businesses and people from cyber risk. It is also about training and educating the cyber workforce Australian government agencies and industries need."
